14 charged over football violence
Police have charged 14 people with affray in relation to clashes after a football match earlier this year.
The trouble flared after a match between Luton Town and York City on May 3.
Fans invaded the pitch at Luton's Kenilworth Road ground after the club's 2-0 aggregate defeat in the Blue Square Premier play-off semi-final second leg.
Coins and other missiles were thrown at supporters, police and club stewards, and the post-match violence spilled over to nearby Dunstable Road.
Today Bedfordshire Police said they have charged 14 people with affray.
They will appear before magistrates in Luton on Tuesday.
A force spokeswoman said eight adults received cautions for affray and five 15-year-olds, nine 16-year-olds and a 17-year-old have all received final warnings.
She said: "All those who received cautions or final warnings have entered into acceptable behaviour contracts until January 31 2011, with conditions not to go to any Luton Town football games and not to be involved in any disorder during this time."
